Samsung is speculated to roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Galaxy Note 4 within this month. The South Korean tech giant will directly offer the Android 5.0.1 update instead of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Galaxy Note 4 owners. New information coming from Samsung pretty much confirms the arrival of Lollipop within this month.

According to GSMArena, Samsung has updated the Galaxy Note 4 user manual of model numbers like SM-N910C, SM-N910F, SM-N910H, SM-N910CQ, SM-N910G and SM-N910U. It now informs the users about the features of the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop version. This is an indication that the update will soon arrive to Note 4 by skipping the original 5.0 Lollipop update.

A leaked video that surfaced in the previous month shows the Galaxy Note 4 running on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It showcases the attractive Material Design and the TouchWiz UI seems to be offering lag-free experience. Even the appearance of the TouchWiz UI seems to be unaltered as Samsung has brought only minor changes to it.

According to Android Headlines, the reason behind directly jumping on to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update by skipping 5.0 Lollipop is that the former comes with bug fixes for all the issues that arrived with the original Lollipop update. Not only Galaxy Note 4 but also Galaxy Note Edge units are also expected to directly get updated to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.

On Dec 18, IBTimes had reported about Samsung's move on offering Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. People who were able to install the Android 5.0 Lollipop on other smartphones claimed that the new software upgrade brought along various kinds of issues such as Wi-Fi connectivity problems, battery drainage issues, sluggish performance, unexpected crashing and other problems. Hence, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop was built to fix all the errors that came with previous version.

GSMArena claims that the Project Volta of Lollipop update would certainly help in improving battery performance of the Galaxy Note 4. As of now, the only Samsung handset to be running on the Android 5.0 Lollipop is the Galaxy S5. Samsung has not officially confirmed when it will offer the latest Android build for Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.
